Kind of a tough week - but I did it!! W3 complete!

Hi runners!

I have not felt like running for any of W3 and have been inspired and motivated by your stories and got myself out there.

It has been worth it! I feel my stamina has a lot to give, but I know there is quite some way to go before I get to graduation.

To be honest I’m just amazed at running - full stop.

I’m so glad I’ve started and I’ve completed a third of the journey! I have to say to myself, how fabulous is that? 😁😁😁❤️

Wk4 starts Saturday! 🙏🏽

That's super fabulous :-) Well done you for pushing through week 3! I really enjoyed week 4, after not being so keen on week 3 - but everyone seems to like different weeks.

Thanks J! I was very indecisive this week! Run now?.....Run later?....No, run now!, that sort of thing, but I did it. I’m going to try to be a bit clearer with myself for W4! 😂

I have to have a routine and stick to it. And I can only run in the mornings in this heat/humidity. Keep smiling! Every run is a win.

I'm starting week 4 tomorrow and I can't wait. I'm amazed week to week and run to run how much progress I'm making. Thinking back to only a 60s run in week 1 and what a milestone that was then!

Good luck for Saturday

Thank you Chelsea! I felt like pushing harder and it was tempting, as I found surprisingly I felt as though I could go harder, but I know there’s some way to go and I didn’t want to get too confident in case the next week is a lot tougher than I expect. So I’m practicing patience. ❤️

Love what you said! I’m in week three too and hadn’t thought of it as a third of the way! That makes it feel much better!
